  • Commented on MLE Target: J.J. Redick
    I also wouldn't mind getting another pick for Luke Babbitt, for much of the same reasons laid out for Reddick...
  • Commented on An Era Begins
    1st one sounds like either Jrue or Thad, since we eliminated Iguodala....
  • Commented on Ugh, Let's Go Lakers
    The key phrase was "in his Prime". Turner isn't going to walk in the door as MVP-Kobe; though I wouldn't be surprised if he gets 20-5-5 in his rookie year(depending on how Collins uses him). But he has the tenacity...
  • Commented on Ugh, Let's Go Lakers
    Current Kobe isn't jumping over people any more. He relies on his skill & guile to cover his diminishing yet still solid athleticism. Kobe is closer in athleticism to Manu & Roy than he is to the Wade & LeBron...
  • Commented on Ugh, Let's Go Lakers
    IMO, Turner's floor is BRoy and his ceiling MVP-Kobe or Manu mixed with Prime Grant Hill....
  • Commented on Ugh, Let's Go Lakers
    Brand Question. Would you guys consider Brand for Hedo + 13 & the right to swap future picks? Hedo is a sunk cost, but getting that Lottery pick and future pick swap means the ability to stockpile some young talent...
  • Commented on Ugh, Let's Go Lakers
    100% agree with everything you said, hit the nail right on the head as usual Statman. I can root for the Lakers much easier than I can for the C's. I'd much rather see Kobe raising that trophy over Pierce...
  • Commented on Ugh, Let's Go Lakers
    And that is the other reason I want the Suns to win. Copycat league and all, a Suns title might eventually get the league to turn into the 80's with more sophisticated D. Of course, my main reason I want...
  • Commented on Ugh, Let's Go Lakers
    I saw that. Died laughing. CheesyPizza wants out! LOL, that was fantastic....
  • Commented on Ugh, Let's Go Lakers
    Exactly. I try to avoid the comments(too much idiocy is bad for the blood pressure...lol). Regarding SportsRadio, I only hit the occasional podcast for interviews with Sixers personnel, though I still have to hold my nose during most of the...
  • Commented on Ugh, Let's Go Lakers
    Absolutely. I was really hoping that him & Iguodala would quickly get on the same page. I was a little worried after his public critiques(which were accurate) w/o addressing the issues to the player directly first, but this was well-handled....
  • Commented on Ugh, Let's Go Lakers
    One of my problems with Pierce is the similar to one of my issues with LeBron: I HATE OFFENSIVE FLOPPING. Defensive flopping is barely tolerable as it is, but when so much of your game is caught up on gaming...
  • Commented on Ugh, Let's Go Lakers
    LOL. I'm surprised he didn't say it was because of "Hand DOWN, MAN DOWN!"...
  • Commented on Ugh, Let's Go Lakers
    Interesting article on Collins meeting with Iguodala: http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/sixers/20100529_Sixers_coach_Collins_meets_with_Iguodala_to_ease_concerns.html#axzz0pIkAz5Y8 Love that he arranged it, love the things he said to Dre. I also like that he is setting up a mini-camp of sorts for 6/21. This is off to a great...
  • Commented on Ugh, Let's Go Lakers
    Plus, I sincerely doubt they will be running any workouts until after the holiday anyway. They have precisely 4 player to possibly workout for their draft position. That is easily arranged, and unlike previous years, there is no concern about...
  • Commented on Ugh, Let's Go Lakers
    The team does need Doug back for the workouts, but as a NBA fan, I am hoping the Suns take the last 2 so Nash & Hill can beat the Celtics playing beautiful hoops. Either way, Collins will be back...
  • Commented on Pressing Questions - 5/28
    I'd agree, but you get mediocre coaches like Braces-Face, who believe in going small if the opponent is small. Sometimes the obvious must be stated...
  • Commented on Pressing Questions - 5/28
    Precisely...
  • Commented on Pressing Questions - 5/28
    Which helps my point. No real "difference makers", they all are simply complementary players that either operate in the shadow of much better players or are miscast on a mediocre team. I agree with Phil Jackson; make them match your...
  • Commented on Pressing Questions - 5/28
    Exactly. Both are victims of the ESPN(Slams & Threes) era, though Turner's game probably has more aesthetic appeal....
  • Commented on Pressing Questions - 5/28
    That would be a good point. Magic was more of a size & skill outlier, which is what enabled him to really dominate. Though I don't believe Turner is a "below-average" athlete(except in terms of speed and explosiveness). I've made...
  • Commented on Pressing Questions - 5/28
    Oh I know. What I was saying is that those 4 are the only ones you really need to be concerned with, and none of the 4(with the likely exception of Odom, maybe Dirk) can actually guard Brand on the...
  • Commented on Pressing Questions - 5/28
    At the wing? or just on the perimeter? Are we including guys who were not pure shooters with deep range from the moment they entered the league? Or players who have had a superstar/elite-level impact while not actually being either...
  • Commented on Pressing Questions - 5/28
    How many legit Stretch 4s are there in the L? With legit 3-point range(which is what makes the stretch potent, imo)? Lewis, Dirk, Odom, Jeff Green? And like Brian said, it only really succeeds for a few....
  • Commented on Pressing Questions - 5/28
    It is MUCH more fun than Aminu/Aldrich/Udoh. lol...
  • Commented on Pressing Questions - 5/28
    Precisely. And with his playmaking skills, he's also capable of bringing the group along with him...
  • Commented on Pressing Questions - 5/28
    Agreed. That is a dumbass move. Favors/Lopez should be a pro version of Stanford's Lopez/Lopez, a scoring big complemented by a defensive big. If the Sixers picked Favors, they'd be hoping that Speights could be the scorer until Favors might...
  • Commented on Pressing Questions - 5/28
    That is one of my concerns, the desire to dominate. Turner, to me, is the type much more likely to take over the game by sheer force of will. Even if they are "equal", that provides a level of separation...
  • Commented on Pressing Questions - 5/28
    You make valid points, Brian. I can easily admit that finding a Two-Way Impact Big is the easiest, simplest path toward building a contender. IMO, the reason is with that type of player, your team is virtually guaranteed to have...
  • Commented on Pressing Questions - 5/28
    It is a concern, but if Collins still lets him QB the offense with the majority/Plurality of the ballhandling duties(something like 50(Jrue)-30(ET)-20(Dala) or even 40(Jrue)-30-30), then his development should not be stagnated. Solid examples of productive perimeter trios include Kidd-Carter-Jefferson...
